The gardens at Powerscourt are probably the finest in Ireland, both for their design and their setting at the foot of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Having grown up not far away, this is one place which I love to visit during trips back to Ireland.

If you are planning a trip to Ireland, be sure to plan in a visit to Powerscourt and more of County Wicklow. Yes, I'm slightly biased however I'm sure you'll agree that the scenary is simply stunning. If you like a taste of luxury, you can stay at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and enjoy all that Powerscourt has to offer in style.
